Klimavenlig klassiker

Klimavenlig klassiker
Da Kåre Klint og Børge Mogensen i sin tid designede stole for FDB, blev det muligt også for jævne folk at indrette hjemmet smagfuldt. Hemmeligheden bag var billige produktionsformer. Morten Hedeby Elsborg er i sit afgangsprojekt gået de gamle mestre i bedene og har designet en lænestol med et tvist af bæredygtighed. Laserskåret birkekrydsfiner foret med bøg, eg eller lærk, fladpakket under transport som saml-selv-sæt har resulteret i et klimavenligt og billigt bud på en nymodens klassiker.


A Climate-friendly Classic
At the time when Kåre Klint and Børge Mogensen designed chairs for FDB (Danish Consumers Cooperative Society) ordinary people were given the opportunity to decorate their homes tastefully. The secret behind this development was inexpensive production methods. In his graduation project Morten Hedeby Elsborg has poached on the old masters’ preserves and has designed an armchair with an element of sustainability. The result is a laser cut birch plywood chair lined with beach, oak or larch, packed flat for transportation as a do-it-yourself assembly set, a climate-friendly and inexpensive example of a modern classic.
